Under The Same Sky Book Launch #Free Mojgan says
After fleeing Iran at only 17 years old, Mojgan Shamsalipoor's story is one of trauma and uncertainty. Upon being released into the Brisbane community, Mojgan made an extradordinary life for herself graduating from school and finding love in a fellow Iranian refugee, Milad Jafari.

But her happiness was tragically cut short when the Government placed her back into immigration detention in Darwin. The incredibly successful Free Mojgan campaign has seen Mojgan released back into the community temporarily, however the Government maintains she can never reside permanently in Australia. There is a constant threat of deportation.

To share her story, Mojgan has released a book, 'Under the Same Sky', in collaboration with her husband Milad and James Knight.

UQRTC is honoured to be hosting a launch for the book and hopes you will join us in supporting Mojgan and Milad.
